Signs for a Coffee Shop
These retail signs were hanging in a coffee shop that I went to at the Jersey Shore last week. For not a lot of money, the shop was able to have attractive retail signs announcing their loyalty program.
These retail signs were printed on 3/16″ Gatorboard and matte laminated to give something durable as well as attractive.

MegaPrint Big Picture Honorable Mention
We recently received this Honorable Mention from Big Picture Magazine for a Museum Display we printed for our good customer the Maine State Museum.
The museum displays were a combination of wallboard vinyl and gatorboard displays. The wallboard vinyl is an adhesive backed 6 mil vinyl with a “sticky note” adhesive. Museum clients like it because it comes off easily leaving no residue on the walls, so it’s great for displays that will only be up for a short time.
For museum displays that hang on the wall, much of what we do is direct printing on gatorboard. The displays can be hung with foamcore clips, or any of a number of different hanging systems.
Poster Size Map
I took a cruise the first week of June up the Inside Passage in Alaska. Highly recommended! They had this glossy laminated poster on the wall on the ship.
One of the things they did on our cruise was to mark our progress on the glossy laminated poster of the area. It was really nice to see where we had been and would be going. They marked on the map with a wet erase marker, and when we were done, they wiped it off and started marking for the next cruise.
We like wet erase markers on glossy laminated posters for this kind of work. Wet erase markers erase completely and easily. You can also use dry erase markers, but we like the performance of wet erase better.
This is a great little tabletop display we did recently for our good customer Plymouth State University. It’s something they can grab and go to recruiting events with.
Portable displays like this are what you want when all you are given by the event organizers is a table. Even if you have a full size display, it won’t fit in that space. These are designed to show well on a table, and fold up to go into your trunk or back seat very easily.
Depending on what you are given, a banner stand is also an option for a portable display. They don’t go well on a table top, though! A table top display is the right thing for a table top venue.
Corner Wall Mural
I came across this terrific custom wall mural at the Sitka National Historic Park during my recent vacation to Alaska. What I really like about it is the way the wall mural goes around an outside corner, but still fully shows the photo of a Native Alaskan potlatch gathering.
I can imagine the designer faced with the dimensions of the walls in the museum space and trying to figure out how to keep from cropping the photo too much. The brilliant answer: take the custom wall mural around the corner!
A side note- I saw a lot of great Large Format Printing during my museum visits in Alaska. The industry there is doing a very nice job!
